f1 needs a strong and competitive ferrari

Ferrari’s capacity to flatter to deceive knows no bounds it seems. By all measures – including those made by Mercedes – Maranello produced F1’s fastest car for pre-season testing. Favourite status duly followed: this would be the season in which Ferrari finally knocked Mercedes off its perch. But the Scuderia is emphatically failing to convert winter promise into something tangible, travelling backwards instead of building on the foundations of the last two seasons. Given Red Bull-Honda’s rate of improvement, after a slow start of its own, 2019 is looking increasingly like a Mercedes closed shop. Ferrari should nevertheless take heart from the fact its car is fast – devastatingly so when the engineers nail the correct set-up for the prevailing conditions. But it seems that conundrum has become much more difficult this…

Emerging for the top ten shootout Traditionally, the streets of Baku have been a happy hunting ground for Racing Point’s drivers Sergio Pérez and Lance Stroll. The Canadian took his only podium to date at the second race there in 2017 and Pérez finished third last year. The Mexican driver once again impressed on the Saturday of Baku this year, getting his Racing Point through to the top ten shootout of Q3 and lining up fifth on the grid. This shot of him exiting his garage incorporates a technique where you follow the car with a long exposure, but use a little bit of flash around the cockpit area to help freeze the frame.

f1 insider

01 DUTCH GP CONFIRMED And 2020 calendar reshuffle imminent 02 Verstappen on Mercedes’ radar (but not to drive its car) 03 NIKI LAUDA DIES, AGED 70 01 ZANDVOORT RETURNS Following a 35-year break, the Dutch Grand Prix will return to the Formula 1 calendar from 2020, at its previous home of Zandvoort, as the sport bids to capitalise on the popularity of Max Verstappen. While F1 owner Liberty Media is eager to demonstrate that it, like the previous commercial rights holder, is eminently capable of making things happen, a three-year deal for a race at Zandvoort will bring with it some logistical challenges. The demands F1 exerts on circuit facilities and local infrastructure have changed greatly since this venue last hosted F1 in 1985, but Verstappen’s popularity might make some short-term pain worthwhile. Speaking at the Spanish…
